No se lo pierdan mi gente #rubenology with the legendary funny man Ruben Rabasa at Gables Stage. If you are like us you grew up watching him on TV so you won’t want to miss his one man show. There will be laughs and possibly the kind that makes you wet your pants.

From Abre Camino Collective , the ladies who brought Miami the Amparo Experience, now present the legendary Ruben Rabasa (who Andy Garcia called “La Gloria de Cuba”) as he takes the wheel of his own one person show to drive us through the wild ride of his life – all 84 years and counting. See you there!

FAMILY STORY: In the 1980s, a young Olga and Juan Montano found their passion in the baking industry. Olga gained her passion for decorating cakes from her grandmother. Her career began as a cake decorator in a popular Florida Supermarket, where her work was quickly recognized. Juan developed his love for baking while making deliveries for a popular Miami French bakery. He then relocated to the Supermarket, where he was promoted to Bakery Manager. Here, Olga and Juan met and learned the discipline, hard work, and dedication they would later need. After a combined 10 years with the supermarket, Olga and Juan now with four boys, made the tough life- changing decision to pursue their dream. Something their parents could only wish for in a communist Cuba. On May 1st, 1993, their dream became a reality when Party Cake Bakery was born in a small 1,300 square foot bakery on Miller Drive in the growing west side of Miami. Today, Party Cake Bakery has grown into a premier bakery with multiple locations, providing hundreds of jobs in the community. The Montano family, like the business, has grown throughout the years to six kids. Their story has become an example that with patience, commitment, dedication, and hard
work the American Dream is achievable.

Tonight's walking tour will be hosted by Mr Freddy Stebbins as Dr Paul George is on a much-deserved European vacation. For those who do not know him, Freddy is also a professor of Miami History and long-time protege of Dr Paul George. He also happens to be a "funny" man 🤣 (bonus) and multi-talented radio 🎤host so this should be quite a fun night in Little Havana.

We hope you will join us at Tower Theatre at 7p. Reserve your spot through our eventbrite page at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/viernes-culturales-cultural-fridays-walking-tour-with-dr-paul-george-tickets-191191618277

Dear Friends and Supporters,

This Friday we will not celebrate Viernes Culturales as we continue to be denied access by the City of Miami to Domino Park. We continue to work with our partners and sponsors to try and find a solution so that we can once again bring back our 22-year event.

That said it seems there is a lot of confusion in the market so let us clarify. The event being hosted by our City Commissioner NOW on the last Friday has NOTHING to do with our non-profit. Our event is solely funded by grants and sponsors not by the City and not by AmericaTeve. We assure you we are not going anywhere. We are still working on many projects including our Ventanitas Documentary capturing the History of Little Havana since our mission is to ultimately preserve the neighborhood and all its rich history including the Latin Arts and Culture for many generations to come. We still continue to manage the Little Havana Welcome Center every day which thanks to the GMCVB and AARP now includes a Little Havana Map and a downloadable GPS guided Audio Tour via the Wetrek App. We are very proud of everything we do every day to preserve Little Havana and share our wonderful heritage in the neighborhood.

Please still consider joining us at our Historic Walking Tour this Friday at 7pm with Dr Paul George, and please continue to support our local artists and businesses by visiting the Little Havana area and our ambassador businesses including:

Azucar Ice Cream Company
Ball & Chain Bar & Lounge
Bay of Pigs Museum
Caraballo Locksmith
Casa del Tabaco Corp
Cuba Ocho Museum & Performing Arts Center

Also stay tuned for the launch of our new website with daily digital content highlighting what makes Little Havana so special and why it's the #1 Tourist Destination in Miami right now. Remember the Bay of Pigs Museum is also open daily offers private tours for groups.

Thank you to all of you for your support and please email us at [email protected] to donate or join our mailing list.

We will prevail and we will be back very soon!

Queridos amigos y simpatizantes,

Este viernes no celebraremos Viernes Culturales ya que la Ciudad de Miami nos sigue negando el acceso a Domino Park. Continuamos trabajando con nuestros socios y patrocinadores para tratar de encontrar una solución para que podamos traer de vuelta nuestro evento de 22 años una vez más.

Dicho esto, parece que hay mucha confusión en el mercado, así que aclaremos. El evento organizado por nuestro Comisionado de la Ciudad AHORA el último viernes no tiene NADA que ver con nuestra organización sin fines de lucro. Nuestro evento está financiado únicamente por subvenciones y patrocinadores, no por la Ciudad ni por AmericaTeve. Te aseguramos que no nos vamos a ninguna parte. Todavía estamos trabajando en muchos proyectos, incluido nuestro documental Ventanitas, que captura la historia de la Pequeña Habana, ya que nuestra misión es, en última instancia, preservar el vecindario y toda su rica historia, incluidas las artes y la cultura latinas, para muchas generaciones venideras. Todavía continuamos administrando el Centro de Bienvenida de Little Havana todos los días, que gracias a GMCVB y AARP ahora incluye un mapa de Little Havana y un recorrido de audio guiado por GPS descargable a través de la aplicación Wetrek. Estamos muy orgullosos de todo lo que hacemos todos los días para preservar la Pequeña Habana y compartir nuestro maravilloso patrimonio en el vecindario.

Considere unirse a nosotros en nuestro recorrido histórico a pie este viernes a las 7 p. m. con el Dr. Paul George, y continúe apoyando a nuestros artistas y negocios locales visitando el área de Little Havana y nuestros negocios embajadores, que incluyen:

Azucar Ice Cream Company
Ball & Chain Bar & Lounge
Bay of Pigs Museum
Caraballo Locksmith

Cuba Ocho Museum & Performing Arts Center

También esté atento al lanzamiento de nuestro nuevo sitio web con contenido digital diario que destaca lo que hace que La Pequeña Habana sea tan especial y por qué es el destino turístico número 1 en Miami en este momento. Recuerde que el Museo de Bahía de Cochinos también está abierto todos los días y ofrece recorridos privados para grupos.

Gracias a todos por su apoyo y envíenos un correo electrónico a [email protected] para donar o unirse a nuestra lista de correo.

Volveremos muy pronto!

There’s an amazingly creative artist and individual who will be showcasing his artwork at his solo art exhibition on Friday, March 29 at Galeria Adelmo in Little Havana. The gallery is proud to present an art exhibition of paintings by Jay Luiz, a Miami based entrepreneur and artist. The “Reconstruct” art exhibition will open to the public with an artist’s reception on Friday, March 29, and will be on view through Monday, April 22. Jay Luiz is also a recent recipient of the 2018 Red Dot Miami Selects Award Winner. His award-winning painting will be featured at his solo art exhibition at Galeria Adelmo. The gallery showcases a new emerging artist the last Friday of each month and has been doing so for the past nine years. Galeria Adelmo offers private painting lessons, intimate group painting parties, as well as a Saturday morning group art class.

Very excited to join this organization in preparation of their 20th Anniversary next year. This organization has been instrumental to the preservation of the Latin Culture in Little Havana. They have opened the doors to so many emerging artists. So many local artists got their start at Viernes Culturales so congratulations on on your success and I look forward to working with you! #CULTURALFRIDAYS.
